What is Involved in a Microdermabrasion Treatment?

Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation technique that removes the outermost layer of skin, allowing new, healthy skin to grow in its place. This is done by gently blasting the skin with small aluminum and organic crystals. Microdermabrasion can address a range of cosmetic concerns, including acne scars, enlarged pores, and poor skin tone or texture.

Am I A Good Candidate for Microdermabrasion?

If you are looking for a way to reduce the appearance of scars or other mild cosmetic concerns, you may be a good candidate for microdermabrasion. At Renaissance Center for Plastic Surgery & Wellness, we are proud to offer financing for the microdermabrasion treatment to make it a more affordable option for those who desire it.

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

During the microdermabrasion treatment, a handheld tool is used to deliver a precise stream of organic crystals to the skin. This process gently exfoliates the skin, and any debris is collected using a vacuum function that is attached to the handpiece. The microdermabrasion treatment is well-tolerated by many patients, and is typically performed in about 30 minutes.

What Can I Expect During Recovery Following Microdermabrasion?

After microdermabrasion, you may notice some redness or sensitivity in the treated area. The treated area will be sensitive to sun and other irritants, so it is important to keep the skin protected for the first few days after your treatment. Despite these effects, patients are typically able to resume all normal activities immediately after treatment treatment.

What Results Can I Expect from My Microdermabrasion Treatment?

The results from your microdermabrasion treatment will become increasingly visible as the skin heals. After a few weeks, you will notice a brighter complexion and clearer skin. For many patients, we may recommend a series of microdermabrasion treatments for optimal results. Dr. Contogiannis will let you know how many treatments will be necessary to achieve your treatment goals.
